weapon's ban. >> in the first four years of his administration president obama did more to expand handgun ownership. these are normal rational things and you have nothing to fear. >> yes, but he's black. >> stephanie: all right. ollie north on nra news radio. >> it is now going to be done by executive action. >> shocking! >> that's contrary to my understanding of what the constitution is all about. and i think it's contrary and foreign to most of us. when he raise that right hand and take that oath we don't pledge to a political party, to an individual, unlike many other countries around the world. what we have done is we have now decided that one man can decide what is or isn't legal under certain circumstances. >> yeah. >> i think that civil libertarians, and by the way the national rifle association is one of the greatest protectors of civil liberties that has ever existed on the planet earth. >> of course if you have been shot in the face your civil liberties -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> i apologize i called him a convicted felon oliver north -- >> stephanie: was

've seen for four or five years with this complaint about how much protection the obama's get. their vacations are too expensive. tucker carlson's starting a petition saying that the secret service should stop protecting the obamas. it definitely taps into very weird issues and it's not always just about guns. >> now the squeaky wheel tend to get the most attention and thankfully cenk has been a squeaky wheel in this issue. >> the national rifle association has been getting flack for advocateing armed guards in schools. >> the brilliant idea that they had was put more armed guards in school. >> barbara boxer say that's something she has suggested to the vice president. >> america agrees with wayne and the nra. barack obama won't have who sets of rules. armed guards for his rich friends in their elite schools restrictions in gun free schools for ours. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. >> cenk: eric, did they get me? >> they did. you were one of the vast majority of people who thought-- thought--i don't know but vast majority but huge n

are predicting gun control will be the big divisive issue in four years. despite the uproar over last month's massacre in newtown connecticut, many are throwing any chance of new firearm restrictions out the window, saying obama's proposals will not even make it to a vote on the house floor. that will leave it largely up to the states. we've already seen new york pass the nation's tightest gun control legislation. next up could be maryland where governor martin o'malley will introduce his own proposals this week. both states are home to potential 2016 candidates and we could see this trend keep up for any democrat who wants to be taken seriously during the next presidential election. >>> and think progress is looking into some ceos who want people to retire later. they're thinking of raising the retirement age up to 70 saying social security is no longer affordable. as think progress notes that's not the case. the program can pay full benefits for decades into the future and with a couple of very small changes, it could extend the solvency for the next 75 years. we'll be right back. show, t

more of the 9 someone tragic stories since newtown. the number >> obama: we take care of our own. we take care of our veterans. we take care of your families. not just by saluting you on one day, once a year, but by fighting for you and your families every day of every year. that's our obligation. a sacred obligation to all of you. >> jennifer: well, that was the president giving what was clearly a very heartfelt speech at arlington national cemetery on veteran's day. but one of the places this country has fallen short is making sure that those same veterans can find jobs when they return home. the unemployment rate of veterans skyrocketed to over 12% in is 2011. the good news is that it has been dropping. unemployment has just been below 7.7% in 2012 compared to 7.9% of non-veteran. that drop is due in part to the initiative by the president. he even signed the vow to hire heroes act of 2011 which helped to put veterans back to work. but the president has said that government can't solve this problem alone. in 2011 he called on the private sector to help. >> obama: we're challenging

over here, by the way it is illustrative once a year, for the barbecue on the south lawn. we always have -- we have a great time, he says. >> obama: when i'm over here at the congressional picnic and folks are coming up and taking pictures with their family, i promise you, michelle and i are very nice to them and we have a wonderful time. but it doesn't prevent them from going on to the floor of the house and blasting me for being a big-spending socialist. >> bill: that kind of goes with the territory. >> yeah. i think every president has to deal with that. >> bill: yeah. there are those. but people tend to be nice. civil. somebody asked me the other day like when i get recognized out shopping or restaurants or kind of whatever, how many people really come up to me and say i hate your guts? and it is almost nobody ever does. there are a lot of people that hate my guts but the people that come up usually just say hi, how are you? nice to see you. enjoy your program or love your work or whatever. >> you realize you just opened up pandora's box. because the next time you get seen -- >>

of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonald a sick-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her art work. >> obama: when i look at that painting i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived, the house that layed ahead of her and most of you willall ithink about protecting the most vulnerable among us we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace this fight is worth waging. for her this fight may be worth losing in the short term any way. while the president may might be able to squeak out a small ugly bill riddled with hoop holes and signifying nothing perhaps this instance it's better to stand strong against assault rifles even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress. because it is a noble cause. it is better to lose with grace than to win ugly. because every day the extremeists froth about saddam hussein and king and impeachment on assault rifles, they make the case to every-day americans that these republican americans are less interested in protecting children than in protecting ak-47 assault
